Lexington, KY


Hilltop Equestrian Farm is a small, family-owned farm in the Lexington, KY countryside on the site of a former tobacco farm. Development is concentrated primarily onto a single hilltop to conserve valuable farmland. Traditional forms and clean lines create a simple and utilitarian but formal space, as is needed for daily operations and equestrian events. Also on site are a horse graveyard to the south and a collection of cabins for longterm visitors to the east.

The Highland Park Depot is part of a joint project which aims to provide for the growing transportation needs of Chattanooga, TN through the introduction of light rail while respecting existing culture and infrastructure.

The planting scheme is designed with both aerial views and human experience in mind. The varying heights and textures create a visual depth for the camera. The plant arrangement and colors are intended to recall camouflage and pay tribute to the military heritage of Warner Robins, Georgia. All plant species are native to the area, with the exception of the playing fields turf.

Sunset Gardens is an infill community within the Normaltown Historic District of Athens, GA. Residences share the architectural style and color pallette of the district but are updated for modern living. The shared garden is central in terms of location and resident values, and the park in the northwest corner of the site connects to a city park which hosts a weekly farmers market.


Sunset Gardens


Coverdell Greenspace is a proposed redesign of a lot which lies directly north of the University of Georgia’s state-of-the-art science center. The diagonal axis of the site connects pedestrian traffic from the center to South Campus while effectively dividing the site into an upper lawn for recreation and a lower lawn for more passive activities.

Analysis & Concept

Coverdell Greenspace


The 4th State is the state of change, and it combines luxury and fitness in an all-new way to create an all-new you. Visitors fly in, bringing with them only the trainer they have chosen from our excellent staff and a three-week supply of clothing and groceries as specified by the trainer. Once you arrive in sunny Pinas Bay, Panama you will be taught how to cook, eat, exercise and live in a completely new manner. Bad habits will be amended, pounds will be erased, and you will finally be free to find yourself without distraction.






Harpy House is the primary structure and only residence of 4th State. Its layout is at once clean, simple, and luxurious; embodying the ethos of the resort. The roof design is inspired by the house’s namesake, the harpy eagle, and serves as a catchment area for the water supply. The wall of windows affords excellent views of the bay and bathes the building in natural light.

Mendenhall Spa & Resort located in Juneau, Alaska is anything but a typical resort. The clubhouse area recreates the Alaskan wilderness with oversized boulders, native evergreens, and a stream network. The pool and lounging areas are surfaced in dark stone and set below grade to maximize heat retention and to keep sunbathers shielded from the occasionally high winds.
